Transmission: Automatic Color:White Interior Color: Tan Average Vehicle Review: (5 reviews) I was originally in the market for a used BMW 328i Convertible but could never find one that wasn't a mechanical nightmare. Would have never thought to consider a Lexus until it was suggested to me. This car dwarfs the 328i convertible in comfort, ride, noise, and ease of entry/exit. PLUS, it has the high mechanical reliability of the Lexus/Toyota brand. Having previously owned German cars with their super high repair bills, its a welcomed change.

Lexus IS 250 vs. Other Cars

Lexus IS 250 vs. Audi A4 

The Audi A4 shares much of the same technology and luxury found in the Lexus IS 250. 2015 Audi A4s with the standard 2.0L engine produces an impressive 220 horsepower while getting an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined.1 The Audi A4 is only available with all-wheel drive. 2015-and-newer Audi A4 models come standard with a six-speed manual transmission but there's an eight-speed automatic transmission available. 2013-and-newer Audi A4s are available in three different body styles: a sedan, a wagon (Avant), or the off-road themed A4 AllRoads. 

Lexus IS 250 vs. Acura TLX

From 2015 and later, some Acura TLX models have all-wheel steering, which allows the rear wheels to turn slightly. This type of steering should give the Acura TLX a better turning radius, ideal if you're looking for a car with tight handling. If you're hoping to reduce the costs of your commute, the 2015 Acura TLX gets an EPA-estimated combined mileage of 28 mpg with the 2.4L engine (the similar engine in the IS 250 gets an estimated 24 mpg combined).1 The Acura TLX is equipped with a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission too. 

Lexus IS 250 vs. Infinity Q50

If you carry a lot of passengers or enjoy a roomy interior, consider the Infinity Q50. The 2015-and-newer Infinity Q50 offers 101.9 cubic feet of passenger space in models without a moonroof (compared to the IS 250's 90.2 cubic feet). The 2015 and newer Q50 also provides an available hybrid system with 360 horsepower combined from the engine and electric motor. The hybrid system gets an impressive EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined on 2015 models (compared to the EPA-estimated 24 mpg combine on the IS 250's 2.5L engine).1

Reviews for Lexus IS 250

Overall Rating

4.8 out of 5 (45 reviews)

I love my Lexus

Very stylish and quick car. Nice bucket seats and interior design. It's a very compact car, so if you're tall you may lack some leg room. I'm 5'2 so this is perfect for my size. The stereo system is great and the dashboard is fun and interactive. I like that it tells me how many miles I have left in my tank, what my average speed is, what gear I'm in etc.

Pros

  • Dashboard: Bright, modern, interactive
  • Ride and Handling: fast, smooth
  • Technology and Entertainment: Speakers, GPS

Cons

  • Seat Comfort: My only con thus far is wishing the seat warmers were warmer.

Forget the BMW 328i Convertible

I was originally in the market for a used BMW 328i Convertible but could never find one that wasn't a mechanical nightmare. Would have never thought to consider a Lexus until it was suggested to me. This car dwarfs the 328i convertible in comfort, ride, noise, and ease of entry/exit. PLUS, it has the high mechanical reliability of the Lexus/Toyota brand. Having previously owned German cars with their super high repair bills, its a welcomed change.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling:
  • Cost to Maintain:
  • Reliability:

Cons

  • Cargo Space:

- tom b, 2010 Lexus IS 250

Great features, reliable, stylish car!

This is the 2nd Lexus is250 I've owned. I can't get enough of it! I love the way it handles. I looked for 2 straight years for the right car, literally daily! I test drove every make imaginable from a Porsche to a Kia and kept coming back to the Lexus. I spent more than I had planned, but in the end I am very satisfied!

Pros

  • Cabin Noise:
  • Dashboard: I am a petite woman 4'10" and the visibility over the dashboard is excellent
  • Ride and Handling: Feels like you are gliding across the road

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain:
